an crucial moment in that wing of the republican party asserting itself. >> john: you mentioned the paul-ite wing. we can assume that boehner is the sane one checking in with the president and the crazy wing of his party. but in that sound bite by senator rand paul, we just heard that he wants more cuts in the budget. how does that square with boehner saying they want more cuts when it will cost thousands of jobs. >> i don't really understand boehner saying that. in the wall street journey. it would be in his interest to play down the severity of these cuts. that's what he should be doing. >> john: but isn't he just--if this goes over the cliff the public will blame the president. so logic in facts and history don't matter, does it? >> i guess they don't matter. if this goes on for a long time, and if the economic consequences are severe, then it may reach a point where people actually do blame the president. but i don't know. i think it's a long way away. it's very hypothetical. if i were a republican i would be really, really worried this week. you know, i just don't see how your avera

to be running from. >> john: it seems you speak for the majority of the according to this pew paul, 83% of americans support background checks. 53% support a ban on assault-style weapons. that includes sylvester stallone. is there a sense newtown will change things? or weak legislation will pass and it won't be a serious issue until the next five or six shootings? >> as long as the american people maintain their engagement and make sure their voices are being heard directly to the members of congress, we'll see substantive change. i think we've gone a long way as a country to talk about no longer in vague terms of gun control or supporting the second amendment, things i don't quite understand but talking about the specifics like background checks and clip sizes those are real policies that when you break it down specifically, the vast majority of us support that. >> john: you would think the late president reagan's assault for the ban in 1994 would have a bit more sway among conservative voters. maybe it will. vice president biden is saying america is ready for change but senator john

. that charge was in virginia. john? >> interesting. renee marsh in washington. thanks for that. we want to bring in cnn legal contributor paul callen and joey jackson joins me now want i want to take the "n" word out of it for a sec here. can you hit someone else's kid? how much trouble is he in? the answer is no. what are you thinking. you can't do it and he's charged with simple assault. it's an offensive harmful contact or conduct with someone without their consent. he faces up to a year in jail. i suspect it will be resolved for significantly less than that, john. >> i said take the "n" word out of it. let's not take it out of it. how much does that exacerbate the legal issue? >> he's only charged with a misdemeanor assault. in a lot of other states this would be viewed as a hate crime. he's only charged with a misdemeanor. so the use of the word goes to motive, but it won't make it a worse charge. >> as the mother of the baby says, the man smelled of alcohol and was drinking during the flight. what kind of factor is that? >> i think in the civil case later on, you have to wonder ho

is an obstacle for chuck hagel's confirmation and vote there in congress and then this john brennan matter is very important to the issue of these targeted drone strikes, rand paul, the senator from kentucky has said that he is willing to hold up that vote on john brennan. if he doesn't receive assurances from the white house that the united states will not target any drone strikes on americans on american soil. so some of this information i think the administration is hoping will at least for now satisfy some of those members with these concerns, wolf. >> it's going to be a tough battle, i take it. both of these confirmations likely to go through next week. but it's by no means a done deal, is it? >> reporter: it's not a -- especially when you have senators saying they may hold up nominees and so we're going to have to wait and see whether or not senator paul is satisfied with the information that he's getting from the white house. but this is perhaps, you know, a break in an impasse that we've seen for many, many months, especially over this issue of benghazi. we heard senator lindsey gr
